Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

This was our first time using Sitters and we were a little apprehensive never having met before. Any concerns we had evaporated as soon as Rajwinder came to the door. Raj had a warm and reassuring manner and kept us updated with texts throughout the evening as requested. She played very nicely with the children and the first thing they asked when they woke up in the morning was when Raj would be back! We would recommend Rajwinder without reservation, just as long as we can have her first!

Charlotte was brilliant with my little girl, they had an instant connection the minute she walked in the door and that put me at ease. My little girl said bye to me when I was going to work and not even cried. They went out to the park and for a walk, when I got back to the house she was still clinging on Charlotte and cuddling her and didn't want her to go. I give her 5 ***** I would love to have her again high recommend her. #Happy Parent.

We were a bit worried when we booked as we haven't used a babysitter for years. When Rosemary arrived she soon set our minds at rest. She came with a box of wonderful games for them to play together. When we spoke to the children the next morning they asked us when we were going to go out again so that they could have Rosie to play. Thanks Rosemary.
